Climbing is currently allowed in Last Chance Canyon. Continued access is everyones responsibility. Details
The Lincoln National Forest Service continues its ban on bolting new routes (or, by permission only). However, climbing is currently allowed in all areas of Last Chance Canyon.
DescriptionClimb up on good pockets and ledges. Easier line works off to the right as it rises. The sustained direct line flows far better.
Bodycount2006 - A pair of relatively 'green' climbers attempted this line using a brand new 'thin' 9.2 mm line, and a Gri-Gri fed backwards (before this incident we used to joke that "Hand goes to the climber!") During said attempt, climber fell as the belayers attention was focused on untangling the unflaked rope. Rope slipped, as the Gri was misfed, so much so that the climber landed on the belayers head. Broke the neck of the belayer, after which he hiked out, drove home, and didn't have it diagnosed for another two weeks. The fallen climber suffered a broken heel, and continued to climb the rest of the day. Test your partner before climbing.
